A Special Talk and Tour at the Moffatt-Ladd House
Join culinary historian and Moffatt-Ladd House & Garden staff member Sandra Tarbox for a voyage through time and an in-depth look at the evolution of the house’s kitchen. This power point presentation will show how the different stoves were installed in the kitchen over time, as hearth cooking gave way to the iron stove, and technological improvements made it possible for cooks to have running water in the kitchen, and “refrigerators” to keep food cool. Cabinets were added to hold preserved foods and varieties of cookware and serving pieces. Sandra will peel away the layers of the 1911 kitchen as it was restoed during the 1960’s and discuss how the new iron stoves changed along with the food that was cooked. For the occasion Sandra will create a special display of foods cooked in the kicthen by the six cooks of the house. See what looks good, and take a recipe to try at home!
